Some weeks ago I joined Jane Crowfoot’s Crochet Club 2014.
Although I have learned to crochet at primary school for me – as a knitter – a crochet hook is a dangerous thing. It is normally used as an emergency tool and not really regularly.
But Jane Crowfoot is providing a ton of hints for this Crochet Club 2014, about
- the colour palette
- working out yarn amounts, if you want to change the suggested yarn
- basic stitches
- the difference between UK and US abbreviations and symbols
- how to read a chart
There are also technique downloads and a crochet hook guide.
I follow Jane Crowfoot’s yarn suggestions and use Rowan Cotton Glacé for this project.
So, although I’m not an experience crocheter, it is easy for me to follow. And I really enjoy to crochet the patterns coming with this Club. But before starting to crochet the patterns I followed Jane’s advice to do a swatch and to adjust my hook size.
This is a mystery Club and only the participants know the patterns and the yarns. But I want to tease you with some pictures of the first two sets.
Now I’m looking forward for the next set of patterns, which will arrive April 10th.
Happy crocheting and knitting!
